So... I began this month will all good intentions of really learning this tune and doing something with it but May intervened with much hanky flappin' and stick bashin', two festivals and a day of dance which sorta got in the way of me and this tune. TBH I finally got to it yesterday lunchtime so this is a quick whizz through the tune just in time for the deadline.  I have every intention of revisiting this at a later date and re-working bits of it*

Watch it woman, your self confidence is showing! Seriously, your ability to knock out a workmanlike version of the tune in short order with a promise of later refinement speaks volumes when compared to the hesitant self-doubter of a few months ago. Well done you, you've left the rank of beginner far behind and you are now seated comfortably with the intermediate improvers!

I had this finished last night but the internet was down, it may be a simple tune but it still took me a week to get the melodeon right(ish), lots of fiddles thrown in for good measure
